‘Pep Navigates’ is a short film accompanying the reissue of Valencian ambient composer Pep Llopis’ 1987 record ‘Poiemusia La Nau Dels Argonautes’. The album of minimalism, period electronics, folk melodies and chanted Catalan poetry was meant to be enjoyed like a seascape, offering a Mediterranean journey – one Ulysses, Aeneas, and Jason with his Argonauts charted first and Llopis retraced and retread, from the islands of Menorca to Santorini. The film retraces the original voyage and those of others who followed it since. It features a sailboat at sea, a dance performance, the famous ‘Bellman’s Map’ and a review of the original album by journalist Rafa Mari.
